About Egyptair

EgyptAir is Egypt's national flag carrier airline and has its headquarters plus main hub located at Cairo International Airport. Its business was impacted by Egypt's 2011 revolution and it's been working on a recovery ever since. It has a fleet of nearly 60 planes, which are split between Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

The airline flies to nearly 70 destinations from its base in the country's capital and is particularly focused on domestic operations, although it does also offer some international routes. EgyptAir flights include popular routes to Accra in Ghana, Barcelona in Spain, Brussels in Belgium, New York in the United States and London Heathrow in the United Kingdom.

EgyptAir became a Star Alliance member in 2008, which is in addition to its membership in the Arab Air Carriers Organization and the Arabesk Airline Alliance. It also runs codeshare flights with several other carriers, including but not limited to Air Canada, Swiss International Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Air India and Tap Portugal.

Online check-in

In order to reduce the amount of time that EgyptAir passengers need to spend at the airport, the airline offers an online check-in service that is open from 48 hours up until 90 minutes prior to a flight's takeoff time. Airports on some of its routes have additional regulations which affect online check-in. This includes the destinations of New York plus Tunis and Kuwait City, were passengers must go to a check-in counter for their boarding pass. In Dammam and Riyadh, passengers need to print off 2 copies of their boarding card. The online check-in facility is not available at Erbil and Baghdad in Iraq, Juba in South Sudan, Berlin in Germany, Doha in Qatar, Benghazi and Tripoli in Libya or Harare in Zimbabwe.

Hand luggage allowance

Hand luggage allowance is the same for both domestic and international EgyptAir flights. Economy class passengers may bring 1 item of hand luggage on board their flight as long as it weighs no more than 8 kg, while Business and First class passengers are able to bring 2 items with them, each with a maximum weight of 8 kg. If passengers try to bring any hand luggage onboard that does not conform to these limitations, they will be required to check it into the aircraft's hold. There may also be a charge in effect for this. Allowances can vary on codeshare flights.

Checked baggage allowance

Passengers' checked baggage allowance is determined by the route they are flying on as well as the cabin class of their EgyptAir booking. Business or First class ticket-holders are entitled to bring 1 item of baggage weighing up to 32 kg on domestic flights and 2 items each weighing up to 32 kg on international flights. Economy class ticket-holders are entitled to check in 1 item of luggage weighing up to 23 kg on domestic flights and 2 items each weighing up to 23 kg on international flights. No luggage may have a combined width, height and length of more than 158 cm and the airline will refuse to carry any luggage item that is heavier than 32 kg. Passengers exceeding their allowance will face an excess luggage charge.

I missed my flight from Budapest to Warsaw, and in a failed attempt to contact you for assistance, I spent 60$ worth of credit ON HOLD! Could not reach anyone to speak to form your side, and the LOT office in Budapest airport was as useless as ever. I had to pay for another ticket for 280$. So obviously I am unhappy with this horrible experience.
